[Statue of Flavius Olbius Auxentius Draucus. To Flavius Olbius Auxentius Draucus, of clarissimus and inlustris rank and patrician family, having performed the duties of the Senate with ready devotion, count of the first order and vicar of the City of Rome, companion of the imperial council ( comes sacri consistorii ), prefect of the City of Rome. On account of the outstanding merits of his administrations, which were so strong in integrity, judgement, and moderation, that his honour-inspiring authority safeguarded the reverence for [our] most sublime ruler, while his benevolent judgement guarded humanity. After an embassy of excellent and magnificent men was sent at the request of the most distinguished Senate, which is a just arbiter of worthiness, so that the worth of [his] accomplishments might grow, as was desired equally by enthusiasm and love for justice and providence, our lords Flavius Theodosius and Flavius Placidus Valentinianus, unconquered and triumphant emperors, forever Augusti, ordered as recompense and record of his virtues, which always attract exceptional honesty around [our] commonwealth, that a statue shining in gold be erected and placed [here].
